Web.com Tour Championship announces four-year extension with Atlantic Beach Country Club

May 24th, 2018 · Leave a Comment

The PGA TOUR recently announced Wednesday that Atlantic Beach Country Club has reached an agreement on a four-year deal to host the Web.com Tour Championship through 2021. The 2018 Web.com Tour Championship is set to be contested the week of September 17-23.

Web.com became the umbrella sponsor of the Tour in 2012 and solidified the home for the Web.com Tour Championship in the greater Jacksonville area, where the company is based. Keeping the tournament at Atlantic Beach Country Club for the next four years allows Web.com to have maximum community and charitable impact, while giving Northeast Florida two premier golf tournaments on the annual calendar, including THE PLAYERS Championship.

The inaugural Web.com Tour Championship was contested in 1993 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in Oregon, with the event moving to a handful of different venues over the ensuing 22 years. The tournament was held at Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach from 2013 through 2015 and moved to Atlantic Beach CC in 2016 when the entire TPC property went through major construction.

Last year, five-time PGA TOUR winner Jonathan Byrd picked up his first Web.com Tour victory in over 16 years with a final-round 4-under 67, good for a two-stroke win over Shawn Stefani and Atlantic Beach resident Sam Saunders. On Thursday of tournament week, Saunders set a new course record at the Erik Larsen re-design with an opening-round 12-under-par 59.
